“‘Blanke Ark’ is a design-for-all product system for governmental elections, including voting booth, ballot box, signage system and graphic identity.
Democracy gives everyone the right to be heard, but many can encounter difficulties in the voting process. “Blanke Ark” was designed to make the act of voting available and welcoming to everyone, including groups such as wheel-chair users, visually impaired and illiterates. By focusing on these “elite users”, the voting system has been made easier and more accessible to everyone.
Initially the winning entry of the Norwegian States Design Competition 2008, ‘Blanke Ark’ was developed and tested during the Norwegian Parliamentary Elections 2009, and will be launched countrywide in the Local Elections in 2011.”
I’ve wanted to feature this project for quite some time now, but due to lack of large images, it was put on the back burner and subsequently forgotten about. That is, until a week ago, when I finally got round to emailing Line @ Blueroom requesting some nice big images and additional info as the project blurb on their website was a bit sparse on the details. Enjoy!
